SPL and TWIST Team Up For “Genderize” Screening/Discussion To Promote Trans Allyship

GENDERIZE+(Short+film+playing+in+workshop+intro)

The Seattle Public Library and TWIST: Seattle Queer Film Festival are teaming up for a film screening and “a facilitated discussion about gender diversity” on Thursday, October 19th at the Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Avenue. The film to be shown is “Genderize”, which won the Audience Award  for Best Documentary Short at the this year’s Translations: Seattle Transgender Film Festival.

Note this is a FREE, non-ticketed event. Seating is first come/first served.

More about the film/discussion:

  Join The Seattle Public Library for a screening of “Genderize,” followed by a facilitated discussion about gender diversity and how to be a transgender ally, from 5 p.m. to 6:10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19 at the Northwest Film Forum, 1515 Twelfth Ave., 206-329-2629.

Library events are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required. The film is 13 minutes and not rated.

In the film, director Chase Joynt interviews three young siblings who share their thoughts on gender. Four years later, they exhibit a more developed perspective, exploring privilege, sexism, puberty and parenting.

Following the screening, attendees are invited to join an open discussion facilitated by Aidan Key, director of Gender Diversity and founder of the Gender Odyssey conference. Questions are welcome at this educational evening. Attendees will gain a working vocabulary of current terms, more understanding of gender-nonconforming people, and tools for how to be a transgender ally.

For more information, call the Library at 206-386-4636 or Ask a Librarian.
